Fattoria di Magliano Vermentino della Maremma Pagliatura 2016
The name Pagliatura, meaning "hay," references the golden color of the wine. White peach, apple, and pear aromas abound, while floral notes further enhance the bouquet. A hint of mint adds an interesting component to the flavor profile. Vinified in stainless steel to allow maximum fruit expression, the wine is refined on the fine lees for 3 months. Although bottle aged for an additional 6 months, this wine remains fresh. A savory wine to enjoy with a meal.

Tre Fili Pinot Grigio 2016Colour: A yellow straw colour. Nose: The bouquet is intense, fruity with notable character. Palate: Fresh, well balanced with a good finish and length. Food Pairing: It is excellent with minestrone, omelettes, egg dishes in general and fish.
Gerard Bertrand Perles De Sauvignon Blanc 2016The Sauvignon Blanc is characterized by its attractive citrus, and sometimes menthol, aromas and is nicely rounded on the palate. The ageing of part of the wine in oak barrels gives structure and length in mouth.
Albet I Noya Classic Tempranillo 2016On the nose, this wine expresses notes of dark fruits such as blackberries. Medium-bodied in style, it is well-structured on the palate with soft, rounded tannins. Flavors of sweet berries such as strawberry and cherry abound. Vinified in stainless steel, the Albet i Noya Tempranillo is a pure expression of one of Spain's most popular varietals. This wine will evolve nicely over 2-3 years.
Georges Puig Carignane De La Perpignane 2013
Montinore Pinot GrisOur 2015 Pinot Gris is a lovely example of the great balance that we can achieve in the Northern Willamette Valley with this grape; stone and citrus fruits envelope the palate, finishing with a distinctive tropical note.
ERA Primitivo 2015The vineyard uses a form of "clean" agriculture without using any pesticides and chemical substances in accordance with the rules set by the organic bodies. Each stage of the production is certified: vineyard, vinification process, storage, and bottling. Big, bold and velvety, this Italian Zinfandel is jammy with blackberry and cherry fruits, wrapped in a silky texture of supple tannins.
Naked Earth Rouge 2015Beautiful concentration, with rich and dark crimson hues, showing raspberry-red tinges at the edges. An impressive nose of strawberry and vanilla, with accents of cinnamon and smoke. Thick, rich and concentrated upon entry, moving into notes of ripe fruits like strawberry and blueberry. The finish is long and elegantly spicy, ending with hints of dark cherries, espresso and chocolate. Serve with red meat, hearty pastas, pizza and spicy dishes.
Natura Carmenere 2015Deep ruby red in color, with aromas of cherries and spice, especially black pepper, on the nose. Robust and full bodied on the palate. Smooth and velvety, with ripe and well-balanced tannins. This wine is ideal with all grilled or sauced red meat dishes, seasoned game birds, and white meats. It also pairs very well with pastas, pâté, hams, and ripe cheeses.
Evesham Wood Pinot Noir 2014Although the Willamette Valley bottling is our least expensive and largest production bottling we put just as much of ourselves into it as our top cuvées. Vineyards such as Eola Springs, Illahe and Mahonia who Evesham Wood has been working with for decades make up the bulk of the blend and those grapes are fermented in small lots and punched down twice a day. Very forward with plum, dark cherry, red cherry with a slightly sweet smokiness reminiscent of a toasted marshmallow. It will be fun to watch this wine evolve over the next five years.
Castiglion del Bosco Brunello di Montalcino 2012Complexity, superb structure, and an inviting, mouthfilling palate are the hallmarks of this Sangiovese grown in the 42-hectare Capanna vineyard facing towards the Mediterranean sea. A garnet-flecked ruby red, it releases generous, emphatic fragrances classic to Sangiovese, developing a near-endless progression notable for its beautiful balance.
Gramona Gessami 2016Appearance: Pale green with brilliant highlights. Nose: Great aromatic intensity reminiscent of a walk in the springtime. It evokes the cool, fresh air, a bunch of white flowers, jasmine, and orange blossom. Aromas of chamomile tea and linden infusions. Apricots, peaches, a citrus breeze. All bound up in a very fragrant, fresh halo. Palate: Pleasant on entry, light bodied and silky on the palate. Fantastic freshness on the finish. The balance of its fruity and floral character is such that it shifts between delicate softness and structure, smoothness and freshness. Food Pairings: Appetizers, salads, and grilled vegetables. All kinds of fish or seafood. Very good with Japanese food. Rice, paellas.
Altos las Hormigas Malbec 2015The joyful and fresh expression of Mendoza is in this Malbec. Red fruits, cherries and a soft note of plums that have just been picked up from the tree. This wine is all about freshness. The palate is supple and juicy, inviting to enjoy glass after glass. Soft but structured tannins and a pleasant finish. Three words can describe this Malbec perfectly: freshness, joy and vitality. Can be paired with light fare or heavier dishes, but also can be enjoyed alone.
